    Wide and smooth as butta! Photos!

    Trails so easy a middle aged mother of two on a rigid singlespeed can ride them!





































    Watch out for traffic on the trails:



    Stop and smell the flowers, but don't get too close:

    Cool, i have fam in Grand Junction. Never been there, but looks really nice.

    I checked out your link in your sig, i see you ride in the Hurricane area a bit. I love it out there... Little Creek Mesa is a blast on the SS. Once i get caught up with work, i'm going to take another road trip out there. Hopefully hit Brian Head and Sonoma as well.
    I love seeing a whole singlespeedin family! Very cool. So how'd you score the pimpinest bike of the bunch?

    I bat my eyes and smile....

    Believe it or not, I've been riding mountainbikes the longest (and singlespeeds about a decade). And I might have some industry connections....

    My daughter has a singlespeed, too. She uses it to beat up on the boys:

    Since Goose and LC are in my backyard can I get you to bring me my 32t 94 BCD that I ordered when you come? I will provide local guide service gratis.

    pay for my gas and i'd gladly reimburse the shipping charges.
    I am dying to get back out there... i'd like to find a good time of year to hit LC, Brian Head, and Sonoma all in one shot. Any advice?

    Very cool. A family that rides together stays together.

    Looks like she got the jump off the gate!

    Brian Head got a ton of snow this year and they are talking like it won't be open until late June/first of July. You can still ride LC that time of year you just have to be up early and off the trail by 10ish to avoid the heat.

    Yea, i did that Brian Head Epic 100 like 4 years ago around that time of year and it still hailed enough to cover the ground.
    June's right around the corner though.
